EUROPEAN MARKETS


GERMANY – despite the best ZEW print since May of 2010 (31.5 JAN vs 6.9 DEC), the DAX remains under corrective selling pressure this morn after failing to make higher-highs. Was that the ‘as good as it gets’ print for European high freq data? Maybe.

ASIAN MARKETS


JAPAN – Abe called the BOJ’s inflation targeting “epoch making”, and while I am not sure what that’s supposed to mean, the market bought/covered Yen, big time, +1% vs USD on the “news” – Nikkei stopped going up on that and actually broke immediate-term TRADE support (10,733) for the 1st time in mths; Big Government Intervention = amplified market volatility.
